On behalf of the Governors and all the School Staff I would like to warmly welcome you to Richardson Endowed Primary School. We are incredibly proud of our school, not just the outstanding educational achievements but of the wider opportunities we offer children and how much they enjoy coming to our school.
Making the choice of school for your child is one of the most difficult decisions you will make as a parent. Here at Smalley we aim to recognise the unique potential ineach child and to work alongside you as parents, to ensure that your child becomes a confident and well-rounded young person. We have an excellent team of staff here who always aim to ‘Go the extra mile’ for the children at our school.
Successful schools have many things in common, one of which is a good relationship with parents. We look forward to working closely with you to ensure we can achieve our aim of becoming an Outstanding School at the heart of the community.
This prospectus contains a wealth of information about our school. However, the printed word can only tell you so much. You are warmly welcomed to visit Richardson Endowed Primary School to look around and meet the staff and children.
We look forward to meeting you and to working closely with you during the time your child will spend at our school.

The whole school community is represented; all staff, governors, PTFA, parent representatives and children from our school council. The vision is displayed in our hall and we keep updating it as we achieve our aims for the coming year. We start the session looking at what our dream school would look like but then break this down into achievable actions for the coming year as we work towards our dream school. The community decided that we have a school that always ‘Go the extra mile’ for our children which we have adopted as our motto.
